Composition with circles

 Circle: is a simple shape, a closed plane curve. All points are the same distance from the center. 

  1. You will be given a copy with some circles in it. Then, you will draw 10 extra circles wherever you want, and with different radius. It is important that these circles intersect each other.
  2. Next you will redraw all the circles in black ink (pen) with the help of the adapter and the compass
  3. To finish your composition you will have to decide wich parts of the circles go black or white, depending on the one next to it.
